Among his new tattoos is a large portrait of his namesake King Arthur on his right arm and hand.

Kevin Paul is also known to have provided tattoos for the likes of Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran and JLS members.

Arthur will also reportedly have a large queen on his left wrist, which will take 50 hours to complete in total.

"We are in the middle of his tattoo, but he had to shoot off to Miami," Kevin Paul said.

"It has taken around 20 to 30 hours to do so far but I reckon it's set to take another 20 hours.

"He has King Arthur underneath his wrist too so you can see it when he raises his hands and then on the other top-side he has a queen."

"His right arm will all be King Arthur inspired designs, which we have come up with together. It's kind of King Arthur versus music."

The early stages of Arthur's tattoo



Earlier this year, the 'Impossible' singer unveiled the early stages of the King Arthur tattoo on his hand.

Paul added: "On the other arm, it will be more damage limitation as there's a lot of mess on there.

"I will be using nice big clean lines and images to cover up some of the less professional tattoos he had when he was younger.

"I have done the outline of a woman. but it's no-one famous, just a pin-up."

James Arthur recently opened up about his battles with anxiety and depression while attending a Comic Relief project.
